Algae Testing

Australia’s waterways provide incredible ecosystems for our fauna and flora, an abundance of public drinking water, and wonderful destinations for leisure and relaxation.

algae testingBut did you know that without stringent monitoring, we run the risk of failing to detect phytoplankton blooms which can affect the quality of the water we enjoy, and can become a risk to our health?

As an Australian Owned and Operated company, Symbio Laboratories proudly provides testing of phytoplankton (algae) and supports major organisations in keeping these waterways safe.

With a team of phycologists and chemists, Symbio Laboratories assists Southeast Queensland’s water authority Seqwater in the important process of monitoring Queensland’s recreational and drinking water supply, by providing first-rate testing and analysis.

In addition to providing our clients with appropriate materials to correctly submit their algae samples, our team conducts the labour intensive process of identifying and counting phytoplankton, including potentially toxic cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), which is capable of producing toxins harmful to humans, livestock, pets, and agriculture.

For more information on the importance of monitoring algal blooms and algae testing, please contact our friendly Customer Service team.
